About April

When we don't have our noses buried in books, we are out sniffing out adventure on running trails and in local lakes! There has never been a time in my life when I haven't had a book in my pocket and a pup by my side. Our family adores dogs, and would love to give your pooch a home while you are away! Our home has a fenced in back yard, a finished basement filled with puppy toys, a few very comfortable couches, and no harsh chemicals - we clean with all natural products to keep the environment as safe as possible. I work from my home office, so your furkid will always have someone around for a walk or just to rub his or her ears. We're also all about sending you pictures of our adventures to ease your mind while you're gone!

We have a blind dog and will need to confirm with guests compatibility with a disable dog.

We are happy to watch multiple dogs from the same family, but will no longer be booking more than one family per day, in order to ensure the safety and happiness of each of our guests!

If your needs are outside of the typical board or daycare, or you need longer term arrangements, please shoot me a note, and I'm happy to put together a custom quote for you!

April and her family were wonderful to our pup! We appreciate her attentiveness and love towards our dog, and we were grateful for all the photos and updates while away. Thanks so much! We look forward to having our dog stay with April again.
April and her family were awesome. Hey were very welcoming to roamie and she had a blast. Very grateful!!
Spencer had a great stay! We appreciated flexibility around drop off/pick up, the outdoor activities he had access to, and how well his goofy Lab puppy ways were handled. We will definitely have him stay again, and will recommend April to our friends.
April and her family were wonderful hosts for my great dane Solomon. They were kind enough to take him last minute and were very flexible on drop off and pick up time. He clearly had a great time while he was with them and they were kind enough to send videos an photos during his stay so I could see what he was up to. It's abundantly clear this family loves animals and I certainly recommend them without hesitation. Thanks April!
April was great. Had to leave town suddenly for an emergency and April saved the day. She was very quick at responding to my request for boarding my dog Toby. April was very flexible with the times we could drop off our dog and pick him up. When we dropped Toby off he seemed right at home and ran through the house like he had been there before. I felt Toby was very well cared for and safe. When we came to pick up Toby after 4 days away he was happy and wagging his tail. He looked like he had been on a little vacation.
April was great!! She took such good care of our 3 dogs and kept us updated while we were away. We have a special needs dog that requires some extra attention, and we were so appreciative of her patience and kindness. We (and the dogs) would definitely love to have her back!
April was so accommodating for a last minute reservation for our puppy Honey. It was so comforting to know that our dog was in a comfortable and loving home, while we were away. The pictures and videos were so appreciated! April and Athena were so sweet and we will definitely contact them again!
April is fantastic! Lucia had a great stay over the weekend, including playtime around the house and an adventure to the dog park! We are so relieved to have found an awesome sitter for Lucia when we're out of town, and loved getting picture updates of our girl! Already booked another weekend for Lucia to stay! Thanks for being so awesome, April!
April was amazing! This has been the best experience I have ever had having someone look after my pups! After my fiance left for deployment both of my dogs stopped eating and got sick very quickly. My veterinarian diagnosed them with depression after several tests and recommended I get my them into a doggy daycare that would take them on long nature walks that would keep them entertained. Unfortunately, my hours during my stay in Charlottesville,VA didn't allow for this. April made many adjustments to her schedule to accommodate the needs of my dogs and my work schedule. She took them to the dog parks and on long walks multiple times throughout the day and sent me several pictures throughout the day. She was very kind to me and my pups! I would definitely recommend her again and again!
April is a great new addition to DogVacay daycare in Charlottesville. We had a great meet-and-greet and then a fabulous first day of daycare. Iggy became fast friend with their dog, Moose, and ran thousands of laps around their fenced-in yard. They are a nice, warm family and very easy to deal with. We'll be back!
